SANA’A – Omani Foreign Minister Yusuf Bin Alawi has said that the main difference between his country and the United Arab Emirates was their position on the continuation of the war in Yemen.
“It is the right of any country to have ambitions, but it should be governed,” Ben Alawi said in an interview with Russia today, referring to the UAE’s efforts to expand its influence within Yemen.
Bin Alawi attributed the crisis to “intellectual and tribal differences and not material disagreement,” stressing that the solution is in the hands of the Gulf factions only.
“The statement issued by the Warsaw Conference does not reflect the real positions of the countries participating in the meeting,” bin Alawi said.
“Poland itself is not compatible with the United States,” he said, adding: “This is not the first time that Washington has mobilized against Iran. Some of the participating countries are satisfied but that does not mean much.”
Bin Alawi said that the Sultanate of Oman had heard Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who had recently visited it, and has decided to take the “candid and strong” stance that relations with Israel could be established only on the condition of the establishment of a Palestinian state.
